that the u.k. next year will grow more strongly than france or germany, and our credible fiscal policy allows for supported monetary policy. and with the bank of england, we are directly addressing the problems of tight credit through the 70 billion pound funding for lending scheme. in the opr's view today, this has lowered interest rates in the real economy and will add to the level of real gdp. one area where the british economy has done much better than forecast is in creating jobs. since early 2010 the private sector has created 1.3 -- 1.2 million new jobs, 600,000 more than was predicted, and youth unemployment has been falling. instead of peaking at 8.7%, the ob russian expects the peak at 8.3%. this at a time when the unemployment rate in spain is 26%, in france it is almost 11%, and across the whole eurozone it is almost 12%. employment, already at a record high, is set to go on rising each year of the forecast, and for every one job less in the public sector, two new jobs are expected to be created in the private sector. britain now has a greater proportion of its peopl

in a foreign language, or in english, notifies them that france, the paris cell phone company to confiscate your call and that if you want to make this call you need to call this number and get a license, basically get an account with them. that is the kind of response that people a long our international borders get and have in the past the can you imagine what my constituents, or my brother says to me, when on the part of the united states, why is a foreign corporation confiscating my calls? so i'm very concerned when, first of all when mr. dingell brought this issue up, it didn't seem to be on your radar, quote unquote, and it also concerned when you state that we have a history of great cooperation with our neighbors to the north and the south. i want to make sure today that you are all aware this is an issue that you need to address, and the people along, both north and south are just as much a part of the united states and have as much right to access to telecommunication a summit in new york, boston or d.c. your and should not have to accept the fact that, well, you're on

that makes it a true high-speed rail possibility similar to france and china and our chairman alluded to that. the recent da 0's larry assessments shows that california high-speed rail has secured $11.5 billion from federal lands state and still needs a shortfall of $57 billion to move forward. to put this in perspective, in the 1950s congress had action to invest in infrastructure and create an interstate system. the initial system took 35 years to build and after several additions highway system is a total length of 47,182 miles. the cost of construction has been estimated at $425 billion in today's dollars. so certainly we should move forward at this time. in urban mobility report by texas transportation institute found the cause of slow speed, what we currently have, on delays, and misconception continues to cost the united states over $100 billion annually. now is the time to make that investment for alternatives to congested highways and simultaneously create jobs. inner city passenger rail service call one of those alternatives, for delays on crawling speeds that face the natio

france, britain -- that we will focus in on this immediate, really potentially disastrous threat that assad will use chemical and biological weapons. >> you said a moment ago that iran is our most dangerous enemy. >> right. >> if so, how far should we be willing to go to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons? >> well, you know, i just echo what everybody has said right up to president obama, that it's unacceptable for us to allow iran to become a nuclear state, that containment is not an acceptable alternative for all the reasons we know. i think that's absolutely right. it changes the whole balance of power in the middle east, it emboldens the terrorists like hamas and hezbollah that are agents of the iranian government. it probably, unless we're strong, leads some of our allies in the arab world to begin to accommodate to iran, and it's a threat to most of the rest of the world, including us. so, you know, the sanctions have been unprecedented, they're having an effect on the iranian economy -- so far not an observable effect on the iranian regime at all. and so i think w

france. what you talking about. we are scaring everybody else, that is giving them an excuse for an arms race. if we get by with forcing us into an arms race we're going to lose it. exactly what president reagan assigned to delay tactic. i would say people at the time, reagan didn't pay that much attention to details. his eyes would glaze over, numbers of missiles and warheads and stuff and fruit, didn't look at those things. he concentrated on basically how do i understand a fellow? how do i convince him to do something that is in his own interests? his current policies are not. we spent much more time and i think effective time talking to reagan about where gorbachev was coming from. what his pressures were, and one of the things we needed to do was in this process to convince him we are not out to do them in. among other things, reagan said in the same memo human-rights was too important to carry out entirely as a public policy. we are much too upfront. if we confront him publicly no politician can back down. we got to handle this more privately. he began to move off the shouting
